About this trip

This package is ideally created for you, immerse yourself in the colorful Cuban culture and escape from it and enjoy the interesting daily life of Cuba. The new Cuban Retreat program is a 6-night stay that gives you the opportunity to get away from it all and perhaps discover why our idiosyncrasy as Cubans is so unique.

You can expect a week of immersion in Cubanness, relaxation, surprising discoveries and revitalization while embarking on this retreat. To experience the day to day, we offer you 6 nights accommodation in "Casas Particulares" the typical Cuban houses where the local owners will prepare a breakfast for you every day.
 

To penetrate the history of the capital of Cuba, "La Habana", we will visit La Fortaleza de San Carlos de la Cabaña, the largest fortress built by Spain in the "New World". Havana repeatedly rose from the rubble and ashes that were reduced from time to time by French pirates and corsairs during the first half of the sixteenth century, so military defenses were built at the entrance to Havana Bay.
 

Feel the breeze of the Caribbean Sea as we drive you along the "Malecon" and through the most significant neighborhoods of Havana on a vintage car.
 

To enjoy the vibrant movements inherited by Africans, an Afro-Cuban dance and music workshops will be offered by local dancers and musicians.
 

In this retreat you will be able to witness the artistic work of Cuban plastic artists and potters and the way in which they reflect Cuban life and culture in their works.
 

We will visit several provinces of the "Pearl of the Caribbean" such as Trinidad, Viñales, Havana and Matanzas.
 

I can assure you that you do not have to be born in Cuba to feel strongly attracted to our island. That's why I invite you to form parts of this adventure
 

To revitalize, the crystal clear beach of Santa María del Mar awaits you, located at the foot of Havana just 35 minutes away.
 

This program is offered from June 27, 2018 and can be done during the next weeks of July 3rd, 2018, the starting days are flexible and are based on your preference.
